MY husband took this tour w our 8 year old daughter and it was exceptional. At first we were a little disappointed to learn we wouldn’t be going into some of the sites but soon realized it was WAY cooler getting the quick overview before going in yourself. It was completely shocking to learn the different perspectives and frankly left us as Americans feeling conflicted and as if we were never taught the entire story. Absolutely 100% MUST see with an open mind and heart. This was our first full day of the trip and it was a perfect start.

This tour is not your usual experience of the Old City. The dual narrative experience was very mind opening and thought provoking. Plus, the tour wandered through back streets and rooftops that no other tour I am aware of includes in their tours. I highly recommend this tour.

The guides were great and the information they presented was nothing short of awesome. Very open and fielded questions to there fullest. Alex and Norm were the right guides for this tour. I am still thinking about what they presented. Found out how much I really don't know. Love hearing their perspective as ones who live here. Thanks very much!

Our two guides, Noor and Ross, were both extremely knowledgable and engaging. They demonstrate great respect and empathy for one another, despite having opposing political views, and do a great job modeling compassionate listening. The purpose of the dual-narrative model is to expose you to various narratives, rather than change your opinions. I left this tour with new a knowledge and appreciation for the history of the Old City and the peoples and cultures that are connected to it.
